Zebrawood Wood Veneer

cat-zebrawood.jpgWhat an appropriate name for a wood species! Few woodworkers can ignore the striking beauty of the stripes in zebrawood veneer. Zebrano trees can grow to 150 feet tall and have a trunk diameter of up to 5 feet! I've managed to get my hands on a small but affordable assortment of zebrawood veneer sheets by way of Africa.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Tip from Joe

I've found that iPhones and iPads display reasonably accurate colors of our veneer photos.
 
Rendering variations on some computer monitors can cause our pictures to appear different from the actual veneer.
